#5103 Japanese Multi-Section Binding, Feb 27, with Anne Covell

$ 65.00


This is an Online Class, you will attend by zoom. In this class, students will learn to bind a Japanese Multi-Section book according to traditional aesthetics and techniques. In this binding, signatures are sewn through slits cut in the spine using a multi-needle method that allows the book to open flat and the thread to remain invisible at the spine. Emphasis in this class will be on cover and text block preparation, sewing, and finishing techniques. 

 Students in this class will be provided with a descriptive handout and materials list in advance of the class to allow students to bind along with the instructor during the demonstration.

This is an online class. Information about participating by zoom will be sent to all participants in advance. We encourage you to enroll early so you can gather the materials and supplies and work along during the class.

Japanese Multi-Section Binding, Saturday, February 27 from 9 am to 11 am (PST)

Please consider:

We want you to join the class by video, if possible, and participate. If you have a noisy household (dogs, partners, music lessons) we encourage you to mute your speaker so the instructor can be heard easily by everyone.

Try to prepare a workspace so you have some room to work, and a space to connect to the class.

Only include who needs to be there. We hope you catch the spirit and want to teach everyone you know how to make books. Plan to do that after the class, please don't include family members, neighbors, pets in this call.
